The Land of Nod

Just doing some Christmas shopping when I stumbled upon a shop called The Land of Nod, which sells children’s furniture.

It’s an odd name for a children’s furniture store, considering that Nod is where Cain was exiled after killing Abel in the Book of Genesis.

Makes one wonder what the store’s slogan is and whether it mentions fratricide.

(The only reason I knew this bit of information, by the way, is that it was a question in a deck of Bible trivia cards that my high school religion teacher used for the purpose of running out the clock when I was freshman, way back in 1987. Curiously, it’s the only fact I remember from that class.)
